RECOMMENDATION:
Planning and Zoning Commission recommended on a 5-1 vote that City Council approve the Major Amendment to a PAD Zone/Preliminary Development plan (DSA-16-00078) for Villago PAD.
DISCUSSION:
An amendment to the Villago Planed Area Development (PAD) has been proposed for the 1250 acre portion of the undeveloped portion of Villago.  Villago is a 1,709 acre master planned community.  It was originally approved in 2003 and revised in 2006 to add an additional 80 acres.   Since the original approvals, Villago Park and lake have been constructed as well as portions of the first residential phase including 999 platted home lots (400 vacant platted lots).  The undeveloped portions of Villago have been acquired by the applicant, prompting the proposed amendment.
 
This proposal is an amendment to the existing PAD that was approved in 2003 and amended in 2006.  The existing Villago residential area, as well as approximately 50 acres in the southeast corner of Val Vista Blvd. and Pinal Ave. will continue to be subject to the existing Villago PAD (Phase 1) zoning.  The undeveloped portions of Villago will be subject to this new Villago Phase 2-4 PAD zoning. 

Villago is currently approved with a maximum gross density of 4.0 du/acre and the proposed PAD will also be limited to the 4 du/acre gross density standard.  The current PAD does not include any one acre lots and the proposed PAD does not alter this, there is no modifications or changes to the proposed lot sizes that are currently approved. 

Summary of Planning and Zoning Meeting on 06/01/2017
During the Planning and Zoning public hearing staff presented a recommendation in regards to the side yard setback exception from the 5 & 10 foot side yard setback requirement for all lots as set forth in the PAD Residential Design Guidelines adopted by City Council in 2003. The Commission did not accept staff's recommendation and voted to recommend alternative side yard setbacks to City Council for the Villago PAD.   Below is a summary of the side yard setbacks  recommended by staff and those approved by the Planning Commission:
 
  • Staff recommended side yard setback requirements:
    • Lots with a  width equal to or greater than 55’ shall have minimum side yard setbacks of 5’ and 10’.
    • Lots with a  width less than 55’ shall have minimum side yard setbacks of 5' and 5".
    • Two-story homes on any lot must have minimum side yard setbacks of 5’ and 10’
  • Planning Commission recommendation:
    • Lots with a  width greater than 60’ shall have minimum side yard setbacks of 5’ and 10’.
    • Lots with a  width equal to, or less than, 60" shall have minimum side yard setbacks of 5' and 5".
    • Two-story homes on any lot must have minimum side yard setbacks of 5’ and 10’

In regards to the currently submitted Preliminary Plat for Phase 2 of Villago this modification would have the following impact:
Staff Recommendation would require:
  • 77% of the proposed lots to have 5' and 10' side yard setbacks
  • 23% of the proposed lots to have 5' and 5' side yard setbacks**
Planning Commission forwarded recommendation would require:
  • 33% of the proposed lots to have 5' and 10' side yard setbacks
  • 67% of the proposed lots to have 5' and 5' side yard setbacks**
**These estimates do not include two-story homes.  All two-story homes are required to have 5' and 10' side yard setbacks.

 
FISCAL IMPACT:
None identified
ALTERNATIVES:
1. Approve the Zone Change as recommended by the Planning Commission
2. Approve the Zone Change with modifications
3. Deny the Zone Change
4. Table the matter
